Question about Jeep CJ7
Hi, I have a 1981 CJ7 6 cyl auto. I started it yesterday and there was a rattling sound coming from the gearbox/clutch area. It sounds like a loose exhaust baffle but it definitely isn't coming from the exhaust. When put in drive or reverse and then put under load there is a rattling/clattering sound. The sound disappears when up to speed. Any suggestions gratefully received! Thanks, Nigel.
It could be a universal joint and not the trans at all.Put your jeep in park and get under it and check for play at each end of the shaft(try turning it by hand counterclockwise and clockwise then try moving it up and down and side to side) If there is any play at all you, need universal joints. Your jeep may also have a hanger bearing.....Check it for play as well
I hope this helps! Keep me posted.
